What our clients say:

Yvonne Kirkels PhD, professor at Fontys University of Applied Sciences

At Fontys University of Applied Sciences / Business Management SMEs in The Netherlands, we played the Innovation Management Game with fourth year students. We wanted them to get a quick impression of all the wide-ranging concepts related to innovation. We therefore chose to play the game in two weeks at the beginning of the course. The result, students acquired knowledge of innovation theory much sooner and profounder than if we would have relied on lectures alone.
